Our services are guaranteed, because we believe in delivering results and giving professional consultations. Welcome!
Tangles' savvy, dedicated staff leads a pro-beauty, anti-stress crusade with a battalion of services to pamper bodies and keep them from walking into the ugly-wall. Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. Tangles pairs such stress-liquefying methods with powerful amalgamations of fragrant essential oils. For customers who need some nail work, Tangles’ Shellac manicure coats people-claws with a hybrid gel-nail-polish designed to stand up to extended periods of jackhammering or talking in two sign languages at once.
Just like hairstyles, names can change. In late 1999, the Gonzalez siblings opened a salon called Dolce Divino. More than a decade and many advanced training sessions with experts later, the salon has been rechristened. Atelier Salon specializes in french haircutting and balayage highlights, and its work has been featured in Vogue, Elle, W, and Allure. Its stylists undergo weekly advanced training sessions to make sure they stay on the cutting edge of style techniques and haircut-related puns.
Only a short wig toss from Corpus Christi Bay sits Salon Viaggio, a mecca for hair customization. Here, elegant chandeliers illuminate the salon's floor-to-ceiling dark wood shelves and OPI polish displays dazzle peepers with a full color spectrum of nail possibilities. Beyond tackling fingers and toes, salon owner Alorah Longoria draws on her degree from the Paul Mitchel School to revamp manes with cuts and color products by Schwarzkopf and Goldwell. She also adds length and volume to locks with extensions, and nixes fuzz from brow outskirts with a signature chocolate wax.
A shared passion often brings talented people together. That's certainly the case at Planet Sol Salon, where each staffer brings her own background and artistic eye to the salon chair. Alexa Cline, for example, trained with Redken educators to gain expertise in haircuts and color treatments. Melissa Guerra specializes in chemical texturizing, and Natasha Gutierrez—who has interned with an American Board Certified Haircolorist—uses highlights to give hair the perfect amount of dimension. Not limiting themselves to just hair, the team members also administer aesthetic services such as chocolate foot masks and shellac mani-pedis.
The stylists are educators themselves, too. They know that a new look is ultimately pointless if it can't be regularly recreated at home, especially if clients find themselves stuck in a temporal loop. To that end, they recommend manageable styles and explain the step-by-step process for their creation.
